The Retro Diner

Ipswich

The Retro Diner is a classic 50's and 60's American style diner located in Ipswich's historic Top of Town precinct.

With a jukebox playing the hits of the era, booth seating, vintage formica tables, and plenty of old school photos adorning the walls, sitting at The Retro Diner offers a real dose of nostalgia.
